Slow Sunday Stitching

 We are currently in the season of the year where everything and anything goes when it comes to weather patterns. Wednesday night there was a winter storm travel advisory posted. And while we in our area didn’t get anything nasty, we did wake up to about an inch of snow on the ground. And now this weekend we have highs at about 21 celcius. It may be necessary to spend some time outside today.

I’ve been doing lots of work on my Quilters Bee cross stitch and making good progress. I’ve started on the words. After this are done I will be doing the specialty stitches to fill the quilt blocks and to do the border around the quilt that the ladies are stitching. Then I can move on down to the next area. As always with the patterns from the Victoria Sampler people this is an extremely enjoyable stitch.

I’ve also started a new pair of socks. No surprise there. Once my eyes go all wonky after doing the small cross stitching I switch over to knitting where my eyes don’t necessarily need to completely focus.

I have been working on some quilt projects too. But I’ll hopefully get a separate post written about them later this week.

I’ll link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. Wow snow ! Stay warm and cozy with the wild weather . You have two fabulous projects going on right now . Have a wonderful day.

  2. Your Quilters Bee cross stitch is lovely and the new pair of socks looks warm and cozy. Have a great new week and happy stitching, Cathy.

  3. Quilter's Bee is so pretty. I look forward to seeing the variety of stitches on that quilt area. I like your socks. The yarn is a pretty color.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
